What a complete turn-around it is for Mr. Darcy to be portrayed first as a jerk and then as the ultimate heart-throb that Jane Austen fans swoon over.

The many film adaptations of Pride and Prejudice have brought Mr. Darcy to the attention of women who otherwise would never have known the longing of Elizabeth and the estate of Pemberley.
